Topic tags/keywords: jacobs ladder toy

I want to make Jacob’s ladder toy as a present. now, making the toy is really easy, but I remember seeing a version in which the ribbons were not tacked to the wood but went through it sometimes. i think that it was once on the inside once on the outside alternating between the outer and middle ribbons, but I am not sure. Anybody knows how to construct the more elegant version?

what i actually meant was http://www.nebraskahistory.org/images/oversite/store/catalog4/Jacobs-Ladder.jpg

you can see that the ribbons are not tacked but pass through the blocks.
